A Tale About a Tiger

Private investigator Lydia Chin infiltrates New York’s Chinatown to stop a dealer in valuable, and illegally obtained, animal parts–the sexual organ of the male tiger, to be exact–believed to have miraculous powers in the mysterious world of Chinese medicine. The tiger, in danger of becoming extinct, is revered by the Chinese people. And Lydia Chin will do her best to stop the criminals in question.
